What is an Online Public School?

Georgia Cyber Academy offers the benefits of a traditional brick and mortar school without the building.

Students access lessons and live classes via an online learning management system.

Parents and students are partnered with certified teachers who instruct and guide student progress and achievement.  In the virtual classroom, students participate in real-time, direct instruction from their teachers.

During the school day, parents provide support and guidance to their student while in the safety and security of their own home.

Georgia Cyber Academy is a 100% tuition-free, online, accredited, Georgia public charter school.

How it Works

Elementary School

Grades K-5

We partner parents and students with a certified teacher to guide and track their progress and achievement through the curriculum. Students participate in teacher-led, direct instruction in the virtual classroom.  Students are also provided with a schedule which outlines daily online lessons to complete, virtual class connect sessions to attend, and other graded assignments to complete.  Students in K-5 require a high level of daily Learning Coach support and guidance.

Student-to-student interaction is emphasized, too, so GCA students are provided with a variety of opportunities for in-person social activities and engagement including opportunities for in-person community partner events.

Who is this intended for?

The Georgia Cyber Academy program serves students in grades K–5 who reside within the state of Georgia.

What are the costs?

Because we are part of the public school system, GCA is tuition-free. Enrolled families receive a complete curriculum. Common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided.

Middle School

Grades 6-8

In middle school, due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success. Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous “Class Connect” sessions, along with completing coursework, will assist with student success. Middle school teachers work with families to ensure students are progressing academically as expected. To achieve success, it’s in the student’s best interest to follow the pacing schedule that’s assigned by each teacher.

Who is this intended for?

Students in grades 6–8 who reside within the state of Georgia are eligible to attend GCA for middle school.
